If you have run a large Concrete5 site, you'll know the pain of having to make multiple small changes across many pages. Do you wish there was a "find and replace" tool?

Now there is!

This has been painstakingly built from the ground up to work in all situations for all C5 sites - from the smallest DIY site to the largest online magazines or blogs with thousands of pages and multiple editors.

This powerful Find & Replace tool includes several new Dashboard pages that allow you to search your entire site for text - inside ALL blocks and within ALL page attributes. Then simply enter your replacement text. After reviewing and selecting the pages you wish to include (or 1-click to select them all), press 1 button and you're done! Easy!

Each page modification uses the Concrete5 page versioning system, so you can easily see the change history for each page.

What if you make a mistake? Don't worry, there's an included "Rollback" tool to undo the bulk changes very easily. This utilizes the same page versioning to approve the previous version and delete your modified version. Super simple.

The Rollback tool is smart. It will identify pages that have been subsequently updated to prevent you from accidentally rolling back to a previous state. It will even know if you manually delete a page version it is looking for or if another editor has checked out a page (and is making modifications). You really can't make a mistake!

What if your content is inside a stack or global area? No sweat, it is picked up just like any other page and displayed with alternative shading for easy identification.

This is the tool you've always wanted. It will make your life soooooo much easier, saving countless hours and frustration. Do yourself a favor and buy a copy today.
